The new board of TAFI is also planning to build on the importance of Wolfville and the Annapolis Valley as a cultural centre, and promises to be looking for opportunities to develop its potential in new and exciting projects.

Word is that one of the most famous names in Annapolis Valley cultural history has been rescued from oblivion.

Jack Sheriff, the most impressive impresario I ever met, was the guy who made things happen.

Nobody could recreate Jack's flare and entrepreneurial nature. He was truly a local eccentric, but it will be interesting to see what the new TAFI gets up to.

Theatre Arts Festival International (TAFI) live and on stage. When I started studying at Acadia University, everybody was still talking about Joan Baez singing in an outdoor concert at Norwegian Bend.

Jack died in 2005. Fortunately beforehand, his contribution was acknowledged by the community and the Valley Arts Award, but the new TAFI's first objective is to keep Jack's name and achievements alive.

In 1993, the last musical I recall him doing, Song for Mud Creek, went on stage in honour of Wolfville's centennial. Most of the town's thespian community took Mbt Shoes Brisbane part. In his later years Jack generously opened his little stage to rambling musicians. There were some great concerts at the Kip. Greg Muttart recorded his third CD there and called it Live at Jack's.
